The Nature of Design
Hello, and welcome internet traveler. Might I offer you a quick story? Very well.
My life has led down many roads, both dirt and paved, and the one constant along the journey is my love of design within nature - patterns, color, and arrangement of elements that takes my breath away. Check out a sunset or mountain landscape–it just looks good! I see design everywhere. From the road signs directing traffic, to the layout of the city itself. We design homes in the way they are set up, we design our personal style in what we wear, and philosophically, we design our lives in the relationships and directions we take through the years. As I design, I take inspiration from nature and the world around me, in its form and function. I create visual communication with the arrangement of elements like typography, photography, and illustration to bring your message or idea to the world.
I received a BA in Graphic Design from California State University, Northridge and started my career working in the entertainment industry for companies like Netflix, Orbitz, Universal, and Disney. Over the course of a decade and many late nights at small studios and two Agencies of Record, I truly came to understand and appreciate how much time, skill, and coffee goes into great advertising strategy.
Each of my freelance clients receive that professionalism and full-picture thinking.
With an agency background, I have a unique set of skills as a freelancer, including:
Planning and creative strategy, objective art direction, painful attention to detail, an intimate working relationship with Adobe's Creative Suite, production logistics and materials, and the ability to meet time sensitive goals in a fast paced work environment.
This facilitates a more complete approach. Each client I work for gets fresh attention. That ecstatic new job smell on every job. 110% Creative Juices.
Clients small and large each receive the squeeze needed to draw out a vision. Ultimately, I'm facilitating your dreams into reality. Based in San Diego, and working on the world, contact me for your next creative project.
